I did not know this tool yet, but it seems that the symlinks on Windows
only work with NTFS partitions. Obviously most Windows users will have
installed their system on NTFS disks, but some meight want to use their
development tree on (external) FAT formatted disks that may fail then.

So I hope the emulated unix environment provides standard unix symlinks
as well (which should work regardless of the undelaying filesystem).

Anyone out there who has more Windows experience than me (sorry, I'm a
Linux user)?
